We believe that the Future of Social Media Management and Marketing is Artificial Intelligence

Invest in CURAITE

Social media has become part of the fabric of our daily lives. It’s how we interact with our friends, our family, and, increasingly, our favorite companies and brands. Companies big and small can no longer afford to ignore and miss out on digital channels of engagement. The problem: usually only big corporations can afford the expertise and tools required to engage customers effectively via social media. And even these expensive solutions tend to be hit and miss.

 

Enter CURAITE, an artificial intelligence-powered platform designed to help businesses and brands manage and optimize their social media marketing. CURAITE uses smart and accessible tools to help businesses and brands organize media and content, predict audience reactions, and publish the right content, at the right time, on the right platform. Better yet, it’s always getting smarter. CURAITE is basically a virtual social media expert—without the crazy costs (or the need to sleep!).

 

We believe that the future of social media marketing is artificial intelligence—and mobile. Our team has been at the forefront of mobile marketing for as long as mobile marketing has been a thing. Remember when SMS donation became popular in the US in the wake of Hurricane Katrina in 2005? We pioneered this strategy with our previous company in Europe four years earlier, raising millions for international and local charities long before it became an industry standard for philanthropy. 


In the past our team has created mobile loyalty programs with over 50 million users combined across the Europe, Middle East and Africa before smartphones and social networks were popularized in these regions.  We have been deeply involved in previous waves of mobile market innovation. The next wave is coming, so we created CURAITE. And we made it mobile-ready, as social media has become a predominantly mobile service—for instance, Facebook has transformed itself into a mobile-first company, earning 91% of its ad revenue from mobile.

 

We believe that right now, many businesses - particularly small and medium sized - are struggling with social media. Meanwhile, our AI is already proving effective. Our sister company in Istanbul - the main developers of the technology that will power CURAITE - has been beta testing our product for the last eight months. In these tests, CURAITE boosted audience engagement across U.S. and Europe-based commercial Facebook and Instagram accounts by an average of 560%. Moreover, CURAITE was able to predict the engagement level of new posts with 96% accuracy.

 

We already have a viable product ready to launch on the U.S. market. Now we are raising money to help with this launch, and to run an aggressive customer acquisition campaign—to bring our product to those who don't have the time, resources, or expertise to promote their brands effectively on social media. We hope to make the tools that we believe have only been available to big brands accessible to everyone. And we want to continue to develop new features that will make our product even better.

 

Invest now and help us democratize social media management!

An AI Social Media Expert

We believe that succeeding at social media has become too difficult, and is only getting harder; social media management is now a full time job.

 

However challenging though, we believe that the potential of these channels to connect with customers and clients is too great to ignore. That’s why companies hire pricey experts and agencies or spend a lot of time guessing what to post, when, and where—often without much to show for in terms of results. Until now, we feel that small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), from the small hotel or restaurant owner to the struggling freelancer, have been left without a solution that works for them.

 

CURAITE’s smart and easy-to-use software removes the guesswork from the equation at a fraction of the price of agencies. Anyone can publish the right content at the right time on the right channel, and they can do so right from their mobile device. Plus, CURAITE is always learning, offering better recommendations over time.

CURAITE is a web service and a mobile App, that makes social media management easy

 A user connects Facebook and Instagram to CURAITE, auto-uploading and organizing images and video.

CURAITE auto-generates a publishing schedule optimized to increase audience engagement.

The user is periodically prompted to approve AI-curated posts and ads, and to upload new content.

"CURAITE really helps us enhance the agency services we’re giving to our clients and provides amazing insights while making our lives much easier. It’s always good to have a partner that listens to us and adapts by constantly developing the product according to the ever changing user behavior and industry dynamics."


Review from Cagil Yuzer

Boomerang Istanbul Social Media Agency

CURAITE’s automated, optimized processes allow users to focus on what is important in their lives and businesses, all the while doing social media better. And we believe it is the only affordable, optimized, fully one-stop solution on the market.

 

The results are in…

 

Our sister company recently wrapped up eight months of beta testing the CURAITE technology on 40 commercial accounts across the U.S. and Europe. We believe the results are conclusive:

 

  • CURAITE predicts the engagement level (likes, comments, shares, etc.) of a post with 96% accuracy. That beats guesswork or gut feelings.
  • CURAITE boosted audience engagement on Facebook and Instagram by an average of 560%.

 

We believe CURAITE works, and we are ready to offer it for a fraction of the cost of existing solutions.

How Does Our AI Evaluate Content?

Most software-based approaches for categorizing content only focus on the entities or objects that make up the image. For example, a typical AI image recognition software would simply identify the objects in this picture - table, glass, food, newspaper, water - but nothing more.



But humans don’t perceive images this way. Without realizing it, we automatically identify relationships between objects to instantly perceive the composition or concept as a whole. For example, we might perceive this image as signifying “vacation,” “summer,” “breakfast,” “yacht,” or “luxury.”

CURAITE’s proprietary AI and machine learning engine is able to calculate this “implied concept” for each image it assesses. It then evaluates each image and predicts audience interaction based on how this “implied concept” compares to historic social media posts.

Where Are We Going?

This is just the beginning of what we can do with our AI.

 

We are already hard at work developing a series of new features and upgrades with tremendous potential for opening key revenue streams and additional up-sell and cross sell opportunities.

 

We are particularly excited about these three AI-powered tools, which we are aiming to roll-out by the end of 2018:

 

  • Social Influencer Matchmaker: Businesses and brands will be able to identify and bid for the social “influencers” with the social media following that most closely matches their target customers in terms of demographics, interests and the type of content they typically engage with. Our users will then be able to create and launch social influencer campaigns directly from CURAITE, benefiting from the compelling, customized content these influencers create for them, and gaining access to a highly engaged audience to convert into customers. CURAITE will take a commission on each transaction. Moreover, anyone with a social media account will now be able to become a micro-influencer, monetizing their existing network of friends and followers and growing CURAITE's potential market.
  • Social Commerce Features: Businesses will be able to optimize the way they promote and sell their products and services directly through platforms such as Facebook and Instagram (rather than needing to redirect customers to their own website or app to make such sales). This will allow businesses to massively increase the size of their potential market while leveraging the network effects of specifically targeting the most active social media users. CURAITE will also help businesses boost sales and revenue by providing insight into the most effective calls-to-action and the most compelling and social-savvy content. 


  • Social Media Advertising Optimizer: Businesses will be able to automate and optimize their social media advertising spending, saving them money and making sure their marketing dollars are being directed to their most efficient and impactful use. Moreover, businesses can test and optimize an ad’s creative, identify core target audiences, and ensure their ads are aligned with historic customer behaviors. CURAITE users will save ad dollars; reaching and engaging more customers for the same or lower ad budgets.

"The best social media manager for my work, PERIOD!... Since getting CURAITE, I don’t have to spend so much time on my social media postings or money on advertisements to get more customers. The way it works is amazing and it is incredibly easy because it does everything for you in order to get the best performance. With CURAITE my followers and pageviews shot up, and with real targeted customers. For my company the best thing about CURAITE is that it uses AI and it learns by itself so you don’t have to worry about coming up with captions or hashtags or finding the best photos to post."

We Believe The Future of Marketing is Social

Source: Business Insider, StatistaMarkets & Markets

At CURAITE, we believe we are on the verge of a “social” revolution in marketing. Between social advertising, social influencers, and social media software, money is pouring into social marketing and management.

 

Consider this: By 2021, US digital marketing spend will be nearly $120 billion. Companies estimate that they will spend 20.5% of their marketing budgets on social media in 5 years, up from 12% in 2018 and 3.5 in 2009%.


CURAITE is poised to take advantage of this rapidly growing industry.

 

The SME market, estimated at 150 million worldwide by the World Bank, offers particular potential promise as a target for CURAITE.


According to Facebook, over 65 million businesses have a Facebook Page and 5 million have Instagram Business profiles.


We project that there will be 50 thousand CURAITE users after 5 years (our financial model assumes <1% share of the total serviceable available market).

Our Team of Mobile Marketing Pioneers

CURAITE's core team have been working together in various companies for over a decade. We are a powerful combination of intrepid marketing experts, entrepreneurs, software developers, data scientists, and investors. “Mobile” is in our DNA; our founders have been involved in “mobile marketing” since before it was a buzzword.

 

In that time, some of our pioneering achievements include:


  • Building a top-ten mobile advertising firm which was labeled, “The Second Fastest Growing Technology Company in EMEA,” in the 2006 Deloitte Fast 500 Survey.
  • Creating mobile loyalty programs with over 50 million users combined across the Europe, Middle East and Africa before smartphones and social networks were popularized in these regions.
  • Establishing PANGEA, a Santa Monica social media consultancy. After winning three consecutive global digital bids to run the country of Turkey’s social media campaign, we established Turkey as “the second most successful destination brand” on social media with more than 6 million followers.

We are deeply immersed in these social media management and marketing trends. We believe we know where they are leading, and we're ready to take advantage of them.

 

So, for the past two years, we have been hard at work developing the AI tech to capitalize and leverage our expertise and past success into a global social marketing solution. The result is CURAITE!


We are now ready to transfer this tech to CURAITE, Inc. and to launch the CURAITE app and web platform here, and around the world.

Invest Today and Join Us

We don’t just want to build a company that is going to be at the forefront of the next wave of social marketing—though we believe we are doing just that, with the right team, the smartest product, at the right moment.

 

In addition, we want to bring the tools currently available to only a select few big brands and corporations to everyone. And to do that, we need you!


We recently incorporated a new company in the U.S. - CURAITE, Inc. - that will be the vehicle through which we bring this revolutionary AI product to the market by launching CURAITE as a SaaS product here in the U.S. and around the world. We chose the U.S. to take advantage of the dynamism and huge potential for growth that we see in this part of the world. 

Following this fundraising campaign, CURAITE, Inc. will also be used to consolidate all of the IP currently held in our sister companies in Los Angeles and Istanbul, including the AI technology that will power CURAITE.


Invest today and become a part of the future of social media marketing and management.

Young Customers Want Instagram Engagement

4 months ago

Great article on Entrepreneur.com talking about the importance of Instagram engagement for reaching younger audiences, particularly for small businesses.

Some great practical tips for anyone looking to up their Social Media game, and some pretty fascinating stats; apparently millennials "spend a cumulative five days a year browsing food images on Instagram, and 30 percent of those surveyed said they would avoid a restaurant if it didn't have a decent Instagram presence." 

These are just the sort of trends we want to enable small businesses to make the most of with CURAITE. So thanks again to all of our early investors and keep spreading the word!

Steve Olenski has written an interesting article for Forbes about How Artificial Intelligence Is Raising The Bar On The Science Of Marketing. Needless to say we agree with him! 

As Steve says, companies across industries are starting to understand how to incorporate AI and machine learning into their marketing efforts. Companies like Amazon and Netflix were early adopters, but CURAITE allows small and medium-sized businesses to access the benefits of AI that until now have only been available to big brands with deep pockets.

Invest now and help us bring the power of AI assisted marketing to all the hard-working small business owners out there!
